They just look like a bunch of loops strung together. I think the last word (last picture) is "Kauhava" which is the name of a town where lots of puukko makers live & work, in their own shops and in factory operations.
The smaller knife was often used for eating meals, bigger knife for everything else.
It is a very nice set. Note both still have the original sharp pointy tip. Often they have been rounded off by sharpening.
I think only a Finn can read Finnish handwriting. And to complicate things Finnish names have lots of vowels often strung together like "oo" or "aa", "uu", etc. Makes the loopy loops even harder to decipher.

Can you give a link to this puukko site on FB ?
